CEDIA Electronic Systems Certified Designer (ESC-D)

Selecting products, creating schematics and drawings, forming budgets, and developing programming. These are just some of the everyday tasks of an electronic systems designer.

These individuals bridge the gap between the client and the installation professionals, focusing on the overall system design and project completion.

Electronic systems designers who are ready to take the CEDIA Electronic Systems Certified Designer exam should be well-versed in design documentation, project design, needs analysis, and design management. Most electronic systems designers who sit for the exam have a minimum of five years of experience.
